Fibre Preparation Machinery
Purpose designed machinery for the specialist process of dehairing exotic
natural fibres such as Cashmere, Angora and Mohair. Operating as a continuous
‘in-line’ system the machine gently separates the fibres to ensure minimal
damage and preserve staple length. The new Dehairing unit incorporates separate
waste recycling to improve performance and maximise yield and productivity.

opening and mixing of the various natural and synthetic fibre types.
